Faculty Advancement and Development Liaison

The overall goal of the Faculty Advancement and Development Liaison (FADL) program is to ensure that faculty advance academically in a timely manner.

Each department has a faculty member selected to be a FADL representative who helps identify faculty prepare for promotion to the next academic rank. The FADL representative links faculty with appropriate resources and may assist faculty in preparing their promotion package on request.
